Hermann Broch – Frank Thiess. Letters from an intellectual friendship // With Paul Michael Lützeler and Thedel von Wallmoden // German National Library Frankfurt am Main // Thursday, 13 December 2018, 19:00

Hermann Broch was already in his mid-40s when he published the first volume of his novel trilogy “The Sleepwalkers” in 1930. In 1928, he made the acquaintance of Frank Thiess in Vienna; Thiess was one of the Weimar Republic’s most successful authors. The friendship that developed between them was placed on a firmer footing between the two World Wars and continued after 1945. Their long correspondence is remarkable for the openness with which they criticised their books, and reflects a time of extensive political and social upheaval.
